Possible Class Action Suit For Lead in District Water

The Examiner is reporting that parents who've brought a suit against D.C. Water for lead contamination have requested that the case be turned into a class-action suit for anyone under the age of 6 who drank tap water between 2000 and 2004.

Back in March, an investigation found that D.C. Water had actually stopped testing for lead in parts of D.C. known to have high levels during that period of time.

For what it's worth: Last summer, D.C. tap water made it into a list of the 25 best tasting area water systems in the country.
